They missed the Church of Farkentology where all of the Farkentologist gather to express their views on deep issues, such as what is a chork and pass on the tale of the "pickle" incident.

Oh mighty Drew, your will be done as it is on Fark.

I'm of the Church of Alvis myself.

'Vengeance is Mine', quoth Alvis. And then he shot the guy, right in the freaking face. For your sins.

Now drink with me deeply of the bourbon, scotch, and rye until such time as we are fighting drunk. Then we shall find, and beat the asses of, the nonbelievers.

You're correct, I've never read the books. No, I don't care if I got any of the Cthulhu mythos wrong.

Most of these are fronts for POEE (the Paratheoanametamystikhood of Eris Esoteric) and the Church of the Subgenius anyway.

If I believe man is god, then is that Homotheism? I mean look at the attributes of gods: omniscience, omnipotence , omnipresence,

The Fundementalist Church of Farkentology still hasn't gotten over it.

I still say Namco missed the boat by not encouraging Japanese gamers to pray to the King of All Cosmos every day. In Japan, that could've been even bigger than their wacky version of Christianity. Of course the only downside would be a lot of people being rolled up into giant balls.

Starting a religion is easy. You just put the key in the ignition and turn it.

All hail Gozer. The Destructor comes in many forms.

Gozer worship is all about entropy. The world and universe WILL end. Some day. Everything is working toward the time when the Destructor comes.

To all who read this Sermon Greetings,


It has been a long time since my fingers have touched keyboard to write a sermon. Even now it is difficult to formulate thoughts, words, and meanings. It seems like a mountain of opposition is against Words of Peace to be given to the ears of the those who would listen. My Military Career has placed me in situations that are both interesting, challenging and memorable. Most challenging is juggling Life as a Sailor, Life as a Father, Life as a Husband, and Life as a Minister. If you notice I didn't put Life as a Juggalo, fore I feel that being an older Juggalo encompasses all these things. The one thing that I can tell, upon my return to Virginia Beach is the lack of Family Love and Respect. It seems that in my absence, everyone began to hate one another. This saddens me greatly. But the Xmas Season, regardless of culture or religion, presents a worthy opportunity. It is the chance to celebrate Birth, celebrate Life, remember the Past, rekindle the flames of human bonds and rebuild the bridges that were once broken. The Holiday Season presents the opportunity to start anew, with Future endeavors and a chance at New Beginnings that can change one's gloomy outlook on Life.

The problem that we have is that each one of us have bridges that we have shattered beyond recognition. I, myself, included have relationships that I have tanked and destroyed like Gundam Wing Zero's Beam Cannon splattering a Zaku in the face, mad love to those who know what I just said. But, I know that I mustn't segregate myself from those who care because Homie, It's cold outside. What are we but empty shells without Love? No one to laugh with or share in a memory. No one to feel our pain when we are down, or to give comfort and an uplifting word. Dang Homie, It's cold outside.

Let the spirit of the season move beyond decorations, fat commercialized bastards that bring presents, or some pumpkin pie. Open your hearts and minds to people less fortunate than you. Listen to a ninja's problems and bend an ear. Or simply lend a smile. Peace towards Man is only possible if you are willing to give it and He/She is willing to Receive it.

Much Family Love

He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

It's never too late to learn. Here's a couple tracts to get you started. The second will set you straight on this particular question.
